Her Dad Becomes Your Dad: Don’t Make Assumptions
Father’s Day is approaching and it seems like as good a time as any to give some thought to the new guy in your life, her dad. Pop culture would have you believe that all Fathers of the Bride see you as a potential threat, or are looking for you to take care of their little girl.
Obviously, this isn’t true. At this point in your life you’ve probably met guys who like sports and those who don’t. You know guys who know how to fix a car, and those who can’t drive, guys who can build things, and those who have the plumber on speed dial. The point is that guys are guys, and there’s no reason to believe your future father-in-law will fit a stereotype any more than you do.
Relax, take some time to get to know this guy as a person. After all, you’ll be spending a lot of time together, for a long time!
